Auntie Rita was such a lovely person, so welcoming when we came to visit and such fun to be around. She was truly remarkable in so many ways, not the least being her sense of humor, her energy level and ability to accomplish so much in a day. The time spent with her was a gift and a treasure – she will be missed.

I have so many good memories of you Auntie Rita. I remember at a very young age you always welcomed me in your home giving me plenty of hugs and so much fun and laughter. As I got a little older you were someone I could talk with and your sage advice still helps me in my life today. I was so happy to see you a few weeks ago and was able to tell you how much I love you. RIP my beautiful Aunt.

Throughout my life you have been my teacher, my friend my inspiration, my world, my mom! You have given me so many memories that will last a life time. Being able to spend your last 10 months of your life with you has been such a blessing. There are no words to explain how greatly you will be. I love you so much mom. Rest in peace, you are with God now
